StubbyDog’s Rescue Dog of the Week is sponsored by Zobo Pet Products, who will be giving away a free collar for every dog adopted through this program.

My name is Rico and I was a victim of a horrible act when my tongue was removed by a knife. I am now doing great and it is time for me to find my own special home. I love my foster parents, but I want a forever home.

I am looking for a guy who loves wearing cargo shorts or pants, and loves playing with a big guy like me. I need a friend that will take me to training and work with me regarding my strong will, particularly regarding balls. I have to admit I am not the cleanest dog in town since I no longer have my tongue. So if you do not mind some drool (I am not as bad as a mastiff), it would be great. I give kisses by sucking on your chin.

If you think you might be interested, please click here to apply. My foster mom and dad can give you more information and you can read all about me here.

Phoenix Pack is located near St. Lois Missouri. You can visit them on Facebook.

    What a handsome boy! I can’t believe how horrible people can be – but it never amazes me how resilient this amazing breed can be! I would LOVE to have a Rico kiss!!!

    What a handsome gentleman Rico is, I am sure there is a forever home just around the corner for him. I will not cry for the cruelty that was done to Rico, I will smile for his strength and bravery.
    big hugs from Australia Rico xox

       @Robina That’s the best attitude, Rico doesn’t live in his past, he just loves people and tennis balls!

    Absolutely LOVE the smile……drool and all!  What a beautiful testament to the true pittie personality.  Hang in there, Rico, “home” is coming.
